Another classic chiller from Val Lewton. Great cast, good screenplay and proof you don't need mega bucks to make a first rate horror film. ( 1 reviews ) Topics: movie trailers, horror, Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Henry Daniell, Val Lewton
Religious drama based on actual events novelized by Franz Werfel. Outstanding cast and lavish production. Best actress oscar to Jennifer Jones (1944) Did Marie Bernarde Soubirous (later St. Bernadette) truly have a miraculous vision? Believers still believe. Doubters still doubt. TRIVIA: Linda Darnell was the first choice to play Bernadette, but her screen reputation (not her private reputation) quickly put an end to that pipe dream. It's fascinating to speculate on what this film might have... ( 1 reviews ) Topics: movie trailers, biopics, religious dramas, Jennifer Jones, Charles Bickford, Vincent Price, Lee J...

One of Ed Wood's lesser known "masterpieces" released in 1960. No aging Bela Lugosi, no Vampira, no Muscleman beginner Steve Reeves, not even Tor Johnson to help the show.

"My friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future." What can be said about this film that hasn't already been said a thousand times? If you haven't seen "Plan 9 From Outer Space" you are missing one of the most amazing films in the history of Hollywood, and the most beloved bad movie of all time, and although you've probably heard otherwise far from being the worst movie ever made. Fortunately it is available here at IA in its jaw-dropping entirety. ( 1 reviews ) Topics: movie trailers, sci fi, alien invasions, zombies, UFOs, Vampira, : Gregory Walcott, Mona McKinnon,...
Ed Wood's notorious cross-dressing "expose," in which Ed wears angora, and Bela Lugosi "pulls the string." However George Weiss' trailer makes it look like a sex change movie, which of course it isn't. CAST NOTE: Ed Wood is billed as Daniel Davis PERSONAL NOTE: This is my 666th trailer upload. The Devil made me do it. ( 2 reviews ) Topics: movie trailers, exploitation, cross-dressing, Bela Lugosi, Edward D Wood Jr, Delores Fuller, Lyle...
A high-energy road chase through Mexico with Robert Mitchum and Jane Greer in pursuit of Patric Knowles and stolen cash, while they inturn are pursued by William Bendix. Filmed in Mexico. Lots of fun. CAST NOTE: Mitchum and Greer also co-stared in the deadly film noir "Out of the Past."

. (Part 2 of 3) - Theater trailer for "Olga's Girls" (1964), sequel to the boring "White Slaves of Chinatown". Here diabolical S&M style torments are actually shown on screen for the first time. As the narration says: "Disgustingly true. No symbolism, just realism." The stylized sadism, whipping and breast torment looks mild today, but was a sensation back then. A new wave of roughie exploitation films would copy this formula countless times. Next are... ( 2 reviews ) Topics: vintage, underground, 60s, bdsm, exploitation, grindhouse, slavery, prostitution
A heavy-handed spoof of '40s matinee serials. I suspect the producers never actually watched many matinee serials. Released in color and monochrome versions. The video quality of both versions is mediocre. Limited theatrical release. ( 2 reviews ) Topics: movie trailers, comedies, spoofs, Blane Wheatley, Monica Himmel, Brent Moss, direct to DVD
An early attempt to deal with the race issue, and in particular race separation, Very much worth seeing if you remember it reflects the attitudes of its time. You need to avoid the 1959 remake. ( 1 reviews ) Topics: movie trailers, dramas, Louise Beavers, Claudette Colbert
Jack Benny's comic fantasy which became the butt of a running joke on the Jack Benny radio show. Actually it's much better than its reputation, and it's at last available on region one DVDs.

- "The Ramrodder" (1969) is an adult western that's part nudie-cutie, part violent "roughie". Produced by an uncredited David F. Friedman and directed by Ed Forsyth under the alias Van Guylder. Notorious for its connection to Charles Manson as well as its lurid sado-masochistic whipping scene with Kathy Williams. The movie features many scenes of R-rated sex plus nude dancing, bodypainting, skinny-dipping, abduction, lesbianism and a topless cat-fight with knives. Filmed...

Trailers for two fetishistic exploitation films from 1967. Both were made in New York and share the same personnel. "Venus in Furs" (1967) directed by Joseph Marzano stars Barbara Ellen. The first film inspired by the famous Sacher-Masoch novel. Contains foot fetishism, animal role playing, and other oddities. "Cool it Baby", directed by Lou Campa, is written by Joe Marzano and also stars Barbara Ellen. More of a "roughie" that copies the "Olga's House of...

"Honey" (1966) directed by Jerry Denby, stars Peggy Steffans. She made several more sexploitation films. Under the name Cleo Nova, she did The Love Merchant, The Sex Cycle, et al. As Marie Lamont she was in the Michael Findlay "Flesh" trilogy: A Taste of Flesh, The Touch of her Flesh, and The Curse of Her Flesh. This film evokes a sleazy under-the-boardwalk carny atmosphere and was apparently filmed at Coney Island, New York. This has all the expected ingredients: simulated...

Theatrical trailer for the infamous 1934 film "Wonder Bar". This film is remembered for the racial-stereotype-filled finale, and a brief scene which obviously features a gay man. Al Jolson stars, naturally (no, he's not the gay man, but he does say "Boys will be boys! Woo!"). Also (spoilers!) sommone gets away with murder! (end of spoilers). After reading several reviews and the Wikipedia article describing the insanity of it I've decided that I *must* see this film! The...

Sidney Lumet's first effort as a film director, 12 Angry Men is an adaptation of the 1954 Studio One television series episode of the same name and covers the deliberations of a jury at the trial of a young man from the slums for premeditated murder. The film begins with the presiding judge giving instructions to the jurors, reminding them that the verdict must be unanimous, that the sentence in case of a guilt will be capital punishment, and that they must be absolutely certain of the...

Unusual, rarely seen movie trailer for "Mark of the Vampire" (1935) with Lugosi looking into the camera and camping it up as Count Mora. This was a rogue non-Dracula vampire movie for MGM that ends in farce. (Universal had already begun to neglect Lugosi in favor of Karloff.) Columbia did the same thing with Lugosi in "Return of the Vampire" in 1943. That same year Universal made "Son of Dracula" with the miscast Lon Chaney. The second trailer is for "White...
